Hood Release CableTo get any work done on your car, you need to be able to open the hood. This is a fairly basic place to start: when you need to access the engine compartment and related components, the most important thing is being able to quickly and easily access the right parts and systems. In order to access the interior or your car, you rely on the mechanism that allows you to open the hood. Generally, the hood is opened with a latch or handle inside the cabin of the car. This handle attaches to the release latch with a hood release cable. When pulled, the cable undoes the latch and releases the hood so that it can be opened. If something in this mechanism breaks, it can be troublesome to fix: how can you open the hood to replace the broken component if you can’t get the hood open in the first place? Many auto shops and technicians are able to finagle the hood open via simple mechanical means. If the cable has snapped, for example, you may be able to reach in and access the cable past the spot where it ruptured. If you need to make repairs to your car, head to PartsGeek.com – where you’re sure to find everything you need at great prices, guaranteed.

Hood Release Cable

Quick and easy access to the components under the hood of your vehicle is really important. From small adjustments like topping up fluids, to more extensive work like engine repairs, it all starts with popping the hood. In order to get the hood open, however, there has to be a reliable mechanism that connects a lever or handle inside the car with the latch that keeps the hood in place when it's closed. That's where the hood release cable comes in. It's the essential part that let's you check everything that's going on in the engine compartment with just a quick pull of the lever. If this cable breaks it can be a real hassle to open the hood and gain access to your engine and all the parts under the hood. That's why it's best to keep the release in top working order by making sure it's replaced before it ruptures. 

You can find just the replacement you need in the large online selection at PartsGeek.com. Browse through a wide range of top brands for hood release cables such as Professional Parts Sweden, Action Crash Parts, OEM, Febi, Dorman and Autopa. With our easy 30-day return policy you have the time you need to ensure that you've gotten the right part.

What are hood cables?

To pop your hood, you make use of the cable that connects the lever or handle on the driver side of your car to the latch that serves to secure the hood when it's closed. By pulling on the lever, the cable triggers the release of the latch, pops your car's hood and allows you to move forward in opening the hood and propping it open. Without this mechanism, you wouldn't have an easy or convenient way to unlock the inside of your car's engine compartment.

How much is a hood release cable?

These cables range in price from $15-$35 on average at PartsGeek.com. Some hood cables come with a handle attached, while others don't have one, so it's important to understand what you're purchasing for the price you're paying. For cables that don't have the handle incorporated, you can search for and purchase the handle separately at PartsGeek.com.

How can I open my hood if the release breaks?

When the release cable snaps or frays, it can leave you in the difficult situation of having to somehow pry open the hood without the assistance of the pulling mechanism designed to do so. Often a mechanic will have had experience with this sort of problem and can assist you. If you have someone to help, you can try having one person pull on the release lever while the other person pushes on the top of the hood. The latch can sometimes disengage when pressure is applied. The best strategy to avoid this problem is proper maintenance, so replace this part at the first sign of resistance or aging.
